We're taking a trip back to 1980.
That is, we're revisiting the worlds of The Shining and The Empire Strikes Back, courtesy of Mike Flanagan's Doctor Sleep and The Mandalorian from Disney+.
Also discussed, Diane Johnson's account from 2018 on adapting the Shining with Stanley Kubrick. https://scrapsfromtheloft.com/2018/01/08/writing-the-shining-by-diane-johnson/
Are these films plumbing the nostalgia dollar? Where's left to go after recycling elements of works that were themselves recycled versions of 1950s pop culture?
Finally Emmet plugs his story Kill Screen, w/ Jeferson Sadzinski and Colin Bell, which was published in The Art of Hate http://centrala.org.uk/shop/the-art-of-hate/
